Abstract

Research into the regulation of social networking services (SNSs) reveals several possible approaches based on Lessig’s model of Law, Mode, Market and Code as means of regulating the Internet. This paper explores some of the issues that arise from a detailed examination of national legislation in the UK coupled with a survey of user and employer perceptions of risk associated with personal data on SNSs. The paper suggests that a mixed mode of regulation is probably most appropriate, but envisages that politicians of the future will continue to be obsessed with trying to regulate the technology rather than people’s behaviour.
